UN Initiative on Children and Youth Highlights Young People’s Climate Change Work

UNFCCC11 June 2013: The UN Joint Framework Initiative on Children, Youth and Climate Change has released a publication titled 'Youth in action on climate change: inspirations from around the world,' which shows how young people are taking action on climate change.

The publication was launched at a side event to the Bonn Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany, on 11 June 2013.

The publication's objective is to highlight concrete work young people do to incite their governments and the international community to scale up action on climate change and raise ambition towards a post-2020 climate change regime. It is designed as a tool for developing and carrying out projects, initiatives and campaigns to increase awareness of the causes and impacts of climate change, promote sustainable lifestyles and advance green low-carbon development.
